UW Mathematics and Computer Building

A microfig scale LEGO model of the Mathematics and Computer building at the University of Waterloo. Despite being micro scale, the model is quite large. The base is 112 x 88 studs (35" x 28").

 

Although I only had 1 class in this building during my university years, I walked past or through it pretty much every day I went to class, and it has always impressed me. It is large and imposing, a textbook example of Brutalist architecture, which was quite popular from the mid 1950's through the mid 1970's.
